Hmm if you play games online we could always gamble.

Facebook games were starting to get me off the real thing and they were FREE... or so i thought until i ran out of Free credits and started buying them. I wasnt even winning REAL money but i was losing it...

Hey guys,

Reckon it'd be awesome to create a list together of things we can do instead of gambling. This could be a great thing to check in on when you're feeling low, or trying to get rid of the urge to gamble.

I'll start.

- Go for a run
- Find a great healthy recipe, go buy the ingredients and cook (maybe invite a friend to join in)
- Get a pet
- Plant a vegie garden
- Get together with friends

Would love to have more suggestions from the users of this forum. Let's keep adding engaging and exciting things to this list!

Happy Monday,

Bri
